    er, well i know people started applying for jobs back in march-may time, to start when they qualify around now! Look on NHS jobs for newly qualified positions starting in january? see if they're up yet?

    Where are you looking at working in?

    i started applying 3-4 months before qualifying, and a lot of other people did this too.

    Erm technically, you see the belly button, do a 3 inch circle aroudn it, quarter it and you do it within those areas- ie you avoid sides which have been used before and you alternate, especially with patients on clexane as many are on it for 2 weeks after some operations and they get some awful bruises

    You don't get christmas holidays as a student?!! That sucks!!

    EDIT: I see you're doing mental health, just out of curiosity where do you see yourself being once you qualify, i.e. what kind of career route do you want to take?

    That's strange - giving you an offer before you have had your interview! Maybe it's a conditional offer until you have an interview.

    Yeah, keele say we dont get christmas holidays in our second year...so i'm currently in placement..

    In regards to career route, I'm not sure. I can see the importance towards community nursing but not so sure on it, as I find that it can often be inpersonal and the clients don't get remembered until the day the nurse has to meet them. (its not that extreme but there we go). I'm interested in anything really...just not with the non-functional elderley. I dont particullary working with dementia..

    I'm interested in working with Veterans with PTSD, and possibly doing this for my elective..like I said I'm not so sure.

    What about you? What do you study/work as?

    PTSD sounds very interesting! My problem is there are so many areas that I want to explore, but if I do that then I'll be jumping all over the place! At the moment I'm doing my first job as a staff nurse on an acute inpatient unit for adults of working age. Hoping to get my first year out of the way and then try and find a community post, because I like the idea of having my own case load, but then I'd also love to do CAMHs inpatient. Then again forensics interests me... ah there's just so much to choose from!

    Keele are stingey, not letting you have xmas hols!

    Yeah, you'd be jumping everywhere and it would be mad...but you can specialise later
    Acute was my first placement. Wasn't so bad, and not as scary as everyone said it would be.

    And yeah, Keele are stingey but meh...I cant complain..
